“The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.” (Psalm 121:8 in the King James Version of the Bible)

God has amazing eyesight! Even when we are alone, we are never out of His sight. Think of it! We are never truly lost for we are at all times under His watchful eye. We may be emotionally and physically exhausted, and unable to see the dangers ahead, but God is always on guard.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, Your presence goes before me, beside me and behind me. Thank you for Your great care for me!

I watch the fuel gage on my car. As it descends toward the big “E,” I begin looking for a gas station. I am aware that if I allow my fuel to run out that my means of transportation will come to a halt.

Occasionally, I allow my car to “run on fumes,” but not for long. I have found that my car is not the only “fuel gage” that I need to monitor. I have one too. When my energy and strength begin to plummet towards that empty mark, I need to refuel. Running on fumes emotionally is unwise.

Prayer: Dear Lord, I need daily doses of Your presence. Without You continually refilling me with Your strength, I cannot make it. You lift me. You help me. You sustain me (Psalm 28:7-9).

“And being in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious: and she brake the box, and poured it on his head” (Mark 14:3 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible). Jesus did not break and enter houses where he was not welcome. It’s my desire to always have the welcome mat out for Jesus at my house. He longs to be with my family and yours. He wants to come to our living quarters and dwell there. Miracles happen when Jesus is invited in. Simon knew what Jesus had done for him and wanted to host His presence. Is the welcome mat out for the Lord Jesus at your house?

Prayer: Jesus, You are welcome in my home. I love having You stay here. Your presence brings peace, joy and love to our household.
